Jesuit Know How to Laugh

Pope Francis was recently presented with a book by Jesuit communicator Nikolaas Sintobin entitled, in the Spanish version, “En todo amar y reír” (In everything to love and laugh). Throughout history and in many cultures, there has been no shortage of opportunities to mock the Jesuits, and the Jesuits themselves have not shied away from hurling humorous arrows. Read more about the book here.

July 7th 1586

On this day in 1586 Jesuits Henry Garnett and Robert Southwell arrived in England, starting their journey to martyrdom. Their mission superior was Fr John Gerard, who dodged execution by escaping from the Tower of London.

For no other reason than the date of July 7th, we thought readers might like a link to an article in Thinking Faith, written by Fr Dermot Preston SJ, about their connections (real and invented) to the Gunpowder Plot.
